appreciate if you can rewrite it in your own style so I can learn from
it and then write my own one. I wont copy yours either because it wont
be me. I appreciate the help. Thank you

That's not bad, but "trouble-shooting Windows applications" bothers me.
That mostly happens on the development team. What is more is likely
that one is trouble-shooting user difficulties with the applications.

Another possible re-write is
My experience encompasses all the requested skills, including use of
Windows applications such as the Window Office tools of Word, Excel,
and PowerPoint to develop presentations and exercise materials for
classroom use. My skills also include helping others trouble-shoot
their use of these applications. I have long used electronic mail and
the resources of the Internet, such as search engines and reference
material web pages."

(If you can also cover FTP and Gopher, go for it -- add onto the last
sentence.)
